This book provides an overview of boundary surveying in the metes and bounds states of the U.S. The focus is on legal issues facing land surveyors when performing boundary surveys. The book is the result of a college level course on the legal aspects of boundary surveying taught by the author. The focus is Massachusetts and Rhode Island but the materials presented are applicable to other states in the U.S. that do not use the Public Land Survey System. This includes most of the states east of the Mississippi River, Texas and Hawaii.Topics include legal concepts affecting real property, the judicial system, statutes and case law, evidence, deeds, plans and recording systems, monuments, calculations, reconciling record and physical evidence, water boundaries, drawing plans, adverse possession, easements, contracts and professional practice.The book assumes that the reader has a basic understanding of the technical aspects of boundary surveying but the materials are presented in an easy to understand manner using plain language. The book starts with a brief review of some of the technical aspects of boundary surveying so even readers with a minimum amount of surveying experience should be able to take advantage of the materials in the book.
